Tasmanian Country - - NEWS - See the full list of fi­nal­ists at www.week­ly­times­

TAS­MA­NIAN or­ganic dairy farmer Andy Jack­man has been named as a fi­nal­ist in this year's Shine awards.

Mrs Jack­man, who farms with her hus­band Matt on their prop­erty in the state’s North-West, is one of 18 fi­nal­ists from around the coun­try.

Now in their sec­ond year, the Shine awards recog­nise and cel­e­brate the con­tri­bu­tions of women in ru­ral and re­gional com­mu­ni­ties.

Over the past 12 weeks, sto­ries cel­e­brat­ing ru­ral women’s achieve­ments have been run in Tas­ma­nian Coun­try, The Weekly Times and the Ru­ral Weekly.

Three fi­nal­ists have been named in each of the six com­pe­ti­tion cat­e­gories: pas­sion, be­lief, grace, spirit, ded­i­ca­tion and courage.

Mrs Jack­man is a fi­nal­ist in the pas­sion cat­e­gory for her work to de­velop the fam­ily’s unique on-farm value-adding busi­ness Red Cow Or­gan­ics. The win­ners of this year’s awards will be re­vealed in a spe­cial Shine awards mag­a­zine avail­able in The Weekly Times on Wed­nes­day.
